Timothy Bish commented on AMQCPP-125:

Cool, I will try and add this once I finish getting the unit tests all brought into the build.

Now if you really want to help me out, you could create a VC solution and projects for decaf

> I couldn't find a test for java.util.Random in the Harmony sources (just took a quick
look), so I used the values from the Mauve test:

problems as far as licensing of this new code goes? Hopefully not.
